Sanford, N.C. (December 16, 2002) -- Perimeter Systems, a division of Southern Aluminum Finishing Company, Inc., announces its newly redesigned Press-Loc Series architectural copings and snap-on gravel stops.

"We are very excited about being able to make the professional roofing contractor's job easier with our Press-Loc Series," said Frank Mills, Perimeter System's general manager. "For example, our new Press-Loc Gravel Stop is so universal that it fits virtually any kind of roof membrane in today's marketplace ... and our Press-Loc Coping offers considerable installation time savings due to its unique yet simple design."

Mills further explains that Press-Loc Coping features concealed spring-loaded compression cleats. These cleats allow the installer to easily snap the coping into position in a vertical fashion which makes installation fast and easy all while eliminating exposed fasteners. In addition, the cleat's heavy gauge design allows parapet walls to vary in width up to 1-1/2" without sacrificing quality or performance.

Roofing professionals will also discover that Press-Loc Gravel Stop is unlike any other gravel stop product available. Its simple, yet powerfully functional design, accommodates most any type of roof system ... whether E.P.D.M., thermoplastic, modified, or built-up... Press-Loc Gravel Stop fits them all. Roofing professionals will find that they no longer need to purchase different gravel stop components and sizes for different roof systems. Simply fasten Press-Loc's secure bar to the roof's edge and snap on Press-Loc's fascia -- it's as simple as a snap.

The company has prepared a 24-page desktop reference manual containing suggested construction details for the entire Press-Loc Series product line and today's popular roof membranes. And as with their Designer Series Commercial and Residential products, Perimeter Systems offers 56 standard EZ-Mix colors in Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000® high performance coatings. Custom color matching also is available for mating their products with other building components.

" A reintroduction special program is underway for our Press-Loc Series product line," said Mills. "For those hungry for a better roofing product, Perimeter Systems is offering Omaha Steak awards". For every $500 of Press-Loc products purchased prior to May 30, 2003, recipients will receive 1 Omaha Steak Buck®, good toward any steak purchase from Omaha Steak. Purchases can be made through any Perimeter Systems sales representative.
